Outwitted by Edwin Markham

 "He drew a circle that shut me out --
"Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
 "But love and I had the wit to win;
"We drew a circle and took him in!
I think of this poem, in relation to immigration. I wonder but what it applies. We draw a line that shuts them out. We call them criminals. But, perhaps there are others of us who have the will to win. We'll draw a circle to take them in.
